The unique aspect about OVA is that we can offer you the opportunity to perform for the most historically renowned operatic associations and organizations in Italy (Casa di Riposo Per Musicisti:  Fondazione Verdi, (Milano), Comitato Renata Tebaldi (Busseto), Fondazione Giacomo Puccini, and the Amici di Luigi Illica in Castel’Arquato, Italy. 2019 honoured the memory of Signora Simonetta Puccini (Torre del Lago) who is deeply missed friend and collaborator with the Academy, and concerts in the historic Casa Barezzi, where Verdi first honed his craft in the Verdi city of Busseto. At the end of each week, the materials studied are presented in and out of town, in concerts to benefit  one of these very important organizations.  Transportation to and from out-of-town centres will be accommodated as well as a one night-stay for two of the events.

Applause and Critics

Every road leads to a destination. Walk the path the composers walked. See and feel them as human beings. Be where they lived, laughed and cried. More importantly, where they composed. The music you wish to sing will never be the same once you embrace the composers as human beings, truly magical people just like you who chose the path of music as the gift they gave to the world. The notes become a blueprint of their souls and yours as you bring both to a new generation.

Take the path to Operavision Academy…. you will never be the same.

Aprile Millo

Operavision Academy

There is no place like Operavision Academy. It is an experience that doesn’t just promise change….it guarantees it. Seeing yourself in a. different way, using the techniques that achieve freedom vocally, and bursting the bubble around safe and robotic singing, replacing it with charisma, and communication… the human voice is  the most direct method of communication. When you wish upon an Opera Star, it makes every difference where you are. BE in Busseto, Italy. Great Opera is in YOU.
